A huge THANK YOU to everyone who made this past tournament - The Buffalo Open - a massive success! We were able to raise almost $2000.00 for Bed4Buffalo that helps get brand new beds for marginalized children. There were some amazing matches and positive vibes all around. It was the largest outdoor open-air tournament in the history of our sport. It was also the largest tournament in Buffalo's history. From competitors, to refs, to tournament managers, to spectators, to vendors and sponsors - together we truly are a #FightFamily.

We want to thank everyone who traveled to be part of this tournament, and everyone from Buffalo who helped host it and showcase what our city has to offer. We look forward to adding more mat areas and watching the scene continue to grow. Back in 2014 we ran the first ever true BJJ tournament in Buffalo. We had about 110 competitors. This past one we were just shy of 400 competitors, and thousands of people got to see our sport showcased in an amazing waterfront venue.

Thanks to Maura Mata Leao Buffalo RiverWorks Pearl Street Grill & Brewery Lofts on Pearl The Açaí Project Modern Enterprise Solutions and Neil Birner, and BuffaloCryo for sponsoring the 2017 circuit.

We can't wait to see what 2018 brings!

Here is the final schedule.

This is the largest tournament in Buffalo's history and the largest open-air outdoor tournament ever.

Doors open at 7:30am. Please do not come prior.

Final check in time is 2pm. You must be checked in by 2pm the latest for all divisions.

If you are late for your division you will be DQ'd.

Reminder: You must make weight prior to your first match. If your first match is in gi you make weight with the gi on. Once you make weight once for a division you do not need to remake it. (So if you make weight in gi you do not need to remake it in no gi).

Refs, Volunteers and tables workers please arrive by 8:00am if possible. We know it is a long day but anyone who has worked with us before will tell you we are always willing to give back - especially when we ask more. We appreciate the help and know that none of this is possible without you.

A huge thank you to all the coaches and teams, and best of luck to all the competitors.
